    Why these two songs?

    If you believe in stupid shit and make bad decisions then "nothing is cool" with you.

    I don’t think people think about much. Just a couple of phrases. Nothing is cool, there is more to the song than Kaufman. Devil on a hog ? It’s a damn song. I like the rhythm. I like the way Bruce crafts his songs.
    “You won’t see my face no more
    My machine has left the floor
    Leave my rivals in the dirt
    I've seen your world and I got the shirt
    Before I leave and go my way
    I've loved it but I couldn’t stay
    There’s nothing left for you to feel
    Just remember me...”

    Bruce and Maiden seem to have left Ancient Greece for Satan these days. Must be Bruce's Achilles heel!

    My sister was an "exotic dancer" about thirty years ago. (Don't judge. They're ALL someone's sister or mother or daughter.) She worked at a club in Memphis TN. The Gold Club. Anyway, I used to go there and turn my chair away from the stage whenever my sister was performing and I got to know the other girls very well. It ruined it for me in a way. I figured it was like having David Blaine for a brother and not ever being able to see another magician perform because you know all the tricks and how they're done. But, it was cool before then.

    They are not just damn songs.
    That song is not actually about Kaufman. It is about much more.
    Spoken like a person who has spent his 70+ (average) years here. That is 3 score plus 10.

    There is much more to so many songs, so many poems, so many shows, so many movies, so many books. It is flaunted in our faces and most are oblivious.

    What is your avatar picture representing?

    This is as good a time as any to tell this story.

    So, as I said, my sister is a dancer at The Gold Club. I go in there to hang out with her and my brother in law (who is a cop on the TN drug task force) and the other dancers. It's a bring your own bottle club where they sell set ups. It's fun to hang out with beautiful girls and drink Grey Goose. If you can chill with a gorgeous woman who not wearing much and continue a conversation that keeps her interested, you're learning valuable life lessons.

    The girls dance au natural by the end of their three song set.

    The club has TV sets mounted on the walls all around the place and whenever my sister is dancing, I turn my chair away from the stage until she's dressed again.

    This time when she goes on, I'm watching professional bull riding on TV. I'm uninterested but it's all that's on.

    There's a new DJ and on the third song, he stops the music and leans into the mike... "You know, I'll never be able to understand why, when there's a beautiful big t****e blond dancin' nekkid on stage, everyone is watchin' except that one dude who is watching cowboys ride bulls on TV. What's the matter, Dude? You gay or something?"

    It's very quiet until a dancer stands up and yells at him. "Hey, you shut the f*** up! That's his sister!"

    I heard a mouse fart.

    The DJ leans into the mike and says "Sorry, Dude."

    The music comes back on and the crowd continues on.

    My wife on the left and my sister on the right. This was about five years after my sister retired.

    How many people walked into clubs with cameras 30 years ago to take pictures of the dancers?

    Now, back to the topic of "Not Cool!" man.

    I did the math and, actually, she retired twenty years ago. That photo was from 2006.
